Emerie is 2 Years Old!

My dear sweet Emerie,
Two years old. Two beautiful, amazing, wonderful, fantastic years of life. I find myself staring at you in amazement every single day. I can't believe God loves me so much that he gave me such an amazing little girl to raise. You are so smart and funny and a million other wonderful things. It's hard to believe that two years have passed us and I am both sad and excited to see all of the things that the future holds. Sad because you are growing up so quickly, but excited because I can't wait to see the wonderful, Jesus loving person that you will become. You are a talker, and you are so good at it. You still speak in phrases but now you are also forming sentences. I love hearing everything that you have to say. We passed a field of daffadils the other day and you yelled "look, rubber duckies!!". Does it get cuter than that? You also think walnuts are meatballs. I love your little mind. Your little voice is so sweet and you love to sing. The video we have of you singing Jesus Loves Me is adorable. You also like to dance and you would play outside every second of every day if we let you. You love to explore and pick up rocks and sticks. You enjoy your time with Papa on Fridays because you and him spend so much time exploring, throwing rocks in the pond, petting the alpacas and horses, and riding in the red wagon. You are still a fantastic sleeper... you go to bed around 8:15 and sleep until 7:30 or later most mornings (when Mommy and Daddy don't have to go to work). We are grateful for that and hope it continues after your little brother joins our family! You love him so much already. You pat Mommy's belly and kiss him and tell me you feel him kicking (even though I don't think you do!). You are going to be such a good big sister.
You are becoming more independent in the eating department as well. You tell me what you want for dinner (usually mac and cheese, cucumbers, cottage cheese, or avocado) and you eat pretty well. You are picky about trying new things but if you find something you like you will eat it for days. We tell you we love you a million times a day because you always say it back to us and it melts our hearts. You love Mickey Mouse (and all of the other characters on the show) and you are going to have a Minnie Mouse pool party to celebrate your 2nd birthday. You also love clothes and shoes. I told Daddy he better start saving up because you will cost us! You always ask to put on your pretty "candles" (sandals) and then immediately say, "go show daddy!" You love new outfits and say how pretty or cute they are. Miss Kim gave you a new outfit for your birthday and you insisted on putting it on. We love your sweet little personality. These past two years have been so wonderful. We look forward to watching you explore, learn, love, and grow... just don't grow too fast, okay? We thank God for you everyday sweet pumpkin!

We love you more than words can express!
Mommy and Daddy
